What Is Courage?

27 Jan

“Courage isn’t a matter of not being frightened, you know. It’s of being afraid and doing what you have to do anyway.” -the Third Doctor, “Doctor Who”

Courage is often incorrectly defined. We tend to think that in order to be courageous we have to be devoid of fear and charge into battle unabashedly. That ideal is simply false. Courage doesn’t work that way; it’s not fearlessness. Everybody is afraid of scary things, but it takes a courageous person to stand up in the face of that fear and do what must be done despite it. That is the true meaning of courage. Being downright terrified and not letting that get in your way.
